Bethenny Frankel is starting off the new year with a new man!
The Skinnygirl mogul is dating financier Michael “Mac” Cerussi III, RumorFix has confirmed.
Our source says “She is dating. Nothing is exclusive.”
The muscle man is nine years younger than the 43-year-old talk show host and he comes from good pedigree — he is the son of corporate trial lawyer Michael Cerussi Jr, who died in 2011. Their family home is in northern Palm Beach County.
Since, Bethenny and her estranged husband Jason Hoppy are still living in the same house, it made sense that Bethenny and Michael wanted to escape to Miami for the New Year’s holiday.
“Bethenny was with Mac and looked very happy on New Year’s Eve,” People reports. “They kissed at midnight and other times during the evening. They looked like they were having a great night.”
The next day, the new couple hit the ocean in Miami and their secret was out!
